our home in COLUMBIA, SC

This home is always going to be a little extra special to us. It was the first home we ever bought, had built, and really where the vision for this blog was confirmed. Even though we were able to pick out the lot, model of the house, and things like flooring, cabinets, and countertops, we put our own touch on every room to make it feel more custom. Like it was ours. We learned a lot in this home - how to install board and batten, change out light fixtures, install wallpaper, you name it, and we shared it all on here! Best of all though is that we learned the importance of staying true to our own style.

ENTRYWAY

Hi friends! Heck, I know that I already started decorating our mantle for Christmas but since the blog revamp was going on during September-October and fall decor time, I wanted to make sure to share how we decorated our home! I shared all about my plans for how I wanted to decorate here but here […]

Happy Thursday! I shared with you all our updated entryway and our board and batten tutorial but I was reminded today when I started planning out fall décor for this space that I also need to share about these frames and herb prints that I found. I love the cottage vibes of a wood and white […]

Eeek! I’m so excited to be sharing this with you all! I honestly couldn’t wait to finish the entire board and batten tutorial before sharing some of these pictures. Don’t worry, the step-by-step tutorial is headed your way! Over the weekend we were able to really finish up the space by adding these hooks, finally […]

Hi! Happy Tuesday. I put this cushion DIY off for as long as I possibly could until it was crunch time. We were having a big group of people over a week later and I didn’t want them to have to sit on the hard-wooden bench (DIY HERE) so I sucked it up and started to […]

Hey guys! Stephen here. We had this corner in our family room right next to our fireplace that was tucked away and we weren’t quite sure what to do with it.  We didn’t know whether we were going to buy a big comfy seat and make it a cozy reading nook or just leave it […]

Hi friends! I think this just might be the quickest reveal we’ve ever done! I’m so excited to be sharing it with you all today. Like all of the other rooms in this home, there was nothing wrong with it. We just wanted to add our own style and the “Tupta touch” to it. I (Stephen really […]

Hi! Let’s just get right into this! Last week I asked you all what to do over our guest bed. I worked with Carpenter Farmhouse to have this beautiful sign made and wanted to show it off over our new shiplap wall. Most people picked option 1 which was the @cottonstem hoop wreaths with the words […]

GUEST BATH

I am overjoyed to be sharing this reveal with you all today! Stephen and I concluded that out of all of the projects we’ve taken on in this house, this one took us the longest. Our budget, the holidays, and time are to blame for that. It was so worth it though! We love how […]
